The natural wonders of Scotland’s culinary landscape by Lady Claire Macdonald
Claire Macdonald is Scotland’s foremost ambassador for the revitalised traditions of highland hospitality.
In this lecture, Claire will pay tribute to the Scots and discuss their global reputation for hospitality. She will also touch on some of the exciting regional foods that exist in Scotland’s larder and discuss how certain dishes alter depending on what area they are produced.
Celebrating modern Scotland, the lecture will highlight the dynamism of Scotland’s entrepreneurial food producers – referring to herb growers and fish producers that are revolutionising modern Scottish cooking by creating exquisite produce, experimenting with preparation methods to appeal to international markets, and pushing the boundaries of service delivery – all of which are positively influencing Scotland’s growing reputation for culinary excellence.
